[thomas@ideapad pm]$ cat config.d/modules SUSPEND_MODULES="wl" [thomas@ideapad pm]$AFAIK this should remove the module before suspending the machine, but I can't verify that right now. Anyone have any ideas?
I've discovered that disabling gnome-power-manager completely will allow the machine to suspend and resume without crashing. If I suspend manually
[root@ideapad ~]# echo mem >/sys/power/state
Then everything is fine, this isn't ideal, but it does work reliably...I've suspended/resumed about 10 times now without a problem :-( I made this a script for convenience, and I lock the screen too, just in case...
[thomas@ideapad ~]$ cat /usr/bin/hack
gnome-screensaver-command --lock && \
echo mem >/sys/power/state
I then chmod 666 /sys/power/state in my rc.local and i can run hack whenever I want to suspend the box. There has to be a better way, I guess I'll start disabling each module in pm-suspend until things start working, but that might take a while...I suspect it's pm-suspend that's causing the crash, gnome-power-manager looks to be essentially a wrapper for pm-suspend.
Everything else works great on this little machine, it's perfect for lugging around, it's light, fast and has a great screen. The SUSE that comes with the machine is unusable IMHO, but I'm more of a Red Hat person anyway. I'm at the Red Hat summit (2009) and the ideapad is perfect for this, i just pop it in the bag and go from talk to talk, it's so light I sometimes forget it's there. Honestly, it's only slightly heavier than my nokia 810.
